Description
A highly interesting and original bark painting painted by Aboriginal artist Yiwin Yiwin from the Oenpelli Mission, Arnhem Land, Australia in 1960. The Oenpelli Mission (1925 - 1975) was situated in the Alligator River district and provided accommodation, education, medical care and religious instruction to Aboriginal children with the children's dormitories operating until the mid-1950's. Arnhem Land is a unique expanse that stretches over 97,000 square kilometers and is rich in Aboriginal culture, breathtaking scenery and rare wildlife. The bark painting clearly depicts a kangaroo painted on to thick bark and the original paper label verso details that the work originated from the Aboriginal Art Centre 511 Kent St., Sydney 2000. Quite a rare piece.
